Quick Start Instructions for ECO ONE
Starter Kit: (top)
THESE STEPS FOR CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER
DO NOT USE “SOFTENED” OR “TREATED WATER”
1. Remove all Filter Cartridges and clean them with Filter Cleanser.
2. Fill your tub or use the existing water in it.
3. Add ½ bottle of “Pipe Cleanser” directly to spa water. *See Note
4. Run jets on High Speed for 1-2 hours.
5. Drain and thoroughly rinse spa.
6. Refill tub with fresh filtered water.( We recommend using a
Pre-Filter and Metal out while filling)
7. Put your cleaned filter cartridges back into the spa.
*NOTE: For first time Eco one users, heavily contaminated spas,
Brand new spas, or newly purchased used spas, use ENTIRE BOTTLE of
Pipe Cleanser and allow to work for up to 24 hours.
This process will flush out any debris & chemical residue in the
pipes. You must go through the cleaning process. We know it’s
inconvenient, but it is necessary for Eco one to work properly.
During the process, your water may become cloudy and you may see
“things” floating in the water. Don’t worry, this is normal.
8. Heat spa up to normal operating Temperature. (100-104 Degrees)
9. Balance Ph and Alkalinity of spa water (Do Not use Perfect PH or
10. Add 2 ONEshock Tablets to the spa water
11. With Jets and Blower (if any) running add entire bottle of Eco
12: Run tub for 10 minutes…Enjoy…
On a Weekly Basis
Add 2 ONEshock Tablets directly to the water.
Remove the filter cartridge; hose it off and replace.
We recommend shocking the spa each time you use it for maximum
results. Just add 1 ONEshock Tablet to the water when you get out of
the spa. Run Jets for 3-5 minutes to circulate.
On a monthly basis
“Eco One” Monthly is designed to last 30 days.
You will need to add a new bottle every 30 days. Follow steps 8-12
Clean your filter cartridge with Eco One “Filter Cleanser” or
another type of filter cleaner.
**NEVER USE SOAP BASED PRODUCTS TO CLEAN YOUR FILTER CARTRIDGE.
Every 3-4 months
We recommend draining, cleaning and refilling your tub every 3-4
months. We also recommend doing a Plumbing cleansing with the pipe
cleaner at every 3rd or 4th draining.(Approx. Once a year). This
will ensure you have a completely clean tub.
Does It Work? (top)
Powerful yet gentle cleansers:
Eco One contains powerful cleansers that break down suntan oil, body
lotions, and other unwanted contaminants, dissolving them
harmlessly, eliminating the cause of unsightly scum and foam.
Flocking Agents: Eco One
contains pure organic compounds
that are naturally attracted to contaminants and minerals in the
water. Solid contaminants clump together into larger particles that
get swept up and caught in the filter where they belong. This
natural flocking action keeps your water crystal -clear for a full
Natural Water Softeners: The natural water
softening minerals in Eco One reduce the surface tension of the
water and help prevent scale from forming. The water feels soft and
equipment is protected.
Enzymes: The secret to Eco One is our proprietary blend of
natural enzymes. Enzymes accelerate natural bio-processes and keep
your spa water sparkling clean without the "chemicals
soup," odor, irritation, dry skin, testing or water balancing.
Enzymes increase the interaction between
elements. They are added to detergents to help break down blood,
fat, perspiration, and grass stains.
Lipase and Cellulase enzymes soften the fatty
exterior walls of microscopic cells, causing them to rupture more
easily. Amylase and Protease enzymes help break down starches and
proteins. Oxidase and Hydrolase enzymes increase oxidation and
promote the rapid degradation of many substances. Enzymes originally
were extracted from both plants and animals, but can now be grown
naturally in common soil.
Our enzymes are of food grade type housed in a
coconut oil base, contributing to the effectiveness of the solution.
As the solution breaks down during use, the coconut oil is released
and gradually coats the filter cartridge, which improves filtration
and makes cleaning the filter much easier. Coconut oil has the added
benefit of being an excellent skin softener!
The result is much healthier water, fresh, clean and clear
without fear of exposure to harsh chemicals or their negative side

One Plumbing Cleanser: (top)
Use Eco One
Plumbing Cleanser every time you drain and refill your spa.
New and old spas must be purged with Eco One
Plumbing Cleanser before converting to the Eco One Monthly Spa Treatment.
New Spas are "wet tested"
the factory to make sure that everything works correctly and to
guarantee there are no leaks. Then they are drained and wrapped in a
protective coating. Eventually they are shipped to the dealer or the
new owner. Because these spas have been wet, algae and mold may grow
inside the plumbing. They also have manufacturing residues that
slowly wash out and can cause cloudy water for many months.
All other Spas
especially 2 years or older
will have chemical residues, hard water deposits, corrosion and
other contaminants hidden deep inside the plumbing and fittings that
cause irritation, cloudy water and pH imbalance.
1. Remove all Filter
2. Fill your tub or use existing water
3. Add ½ bottle of “Eco One Plumbing Cleanser" directly to spa
4. Run jets on High Speed for 1 hour.
5. Drain and thoroughly rinse spa.
6. Refill tub with fresh filtered water. Use the
7. Replace filter cartridges
8. For first time use and/or heavily contaminated spas use
entire bottle and allow to work for up to 24 hours.
* NOTE: Optional: You may wish to use a chlorine
"sanitizer shock" treatment (Such as EcoOne ONEshock) at this step to clear your
water of any bacteriological impurities that may be in your
municipal water supply. Do not use your spa during a chlorine shock.
Avoid contact with your spa water when using high concentrations of
chlorine. Avoid exposure to chlorine fumes. Follow manufacturer's
instructions carefully. Running your blowers and jets will dissipate
the chlorine over time.

hose or kitchen sprayer. Be careful not to damage the filter
elements. You may use any type of Cartridge filter cleaner. We
recommend using Eco one cartridge filter cleaner.
If your filter has black marks on it, it may
be moldy. The filter should be discarded. Be sure to rinse your
filter completely before adding Enzyme-Plex Filter Boost.
Clean and replace filter.
Mix 3 caps full of

glass of water.
Run spa jets and pour mixture directly into
filter intake. Water may be cloudy for a brief period of time.
Eco One Monthly
will keep up to 500 gallons of water looking and feeling great for

for twenty minutes each day, we consider that average use. Heavier
use may require more frequent additions of Eco One.
Carefully follow instructions for

Every 30 days run jets and blowers while
adding a new bottle of Eco One Monthly.

Rinse hands thoroughly after handling Eco One
products. Do not take internally. If accidental ingestion should
occur, drink water. If allergic to certain foods such as coconut or
seaweed, contact your physician. Eco One Monthly can be
very slippery when dropped. Exercise caution in spill areas. Soak up
spilled product with kitty litter or household mop. There are no
special disposal requirements. Products contain: natural enzymes,
minerals, coconut, potassium salts and lemon fragrance.
Trouble Shooting Spa
pH above 8.0
Run blowers and jets. Add small doses of pH down until
pH is below 8.0
Use Eco One non-chlorine shock per instructions.
Dirty or damaged filter
-Remove and clean filter. Add Eco One Enzyme-Plex
-Or retire and replace filter
High Calcium and / or dissolved solids
Drain and refill spa. Water has "Crashed."
The may be a problem during the first couple of months of
Eco One use in older spas that have a great deal of built
up deposits in the pipes and equipment.
High mineral content in water
-Test and adjust pH and total alkalinity. pH should be
between 7 and 8, total alkalinity should be between 80 and
Water too soft
- drain and refill spa, bypassing water softener.
Increase sanitizer use
Add algaecide to water*
Organic or unpleasant odor
-Remove and clean filter. Add Eco One Enzyme-Plex
Mold on cover dripping into spa
- clean spa cover thoroughly with Eco one Vinyl Top
Cleaner and Restorer
Use non-chlorine shock per instructions.
A basic tenet of chemistry is that when mixing an acid
with a base, the resulting compound will be a salt.
Chlorine is a very powerful and caustic 'base' and pH down
is a very powerful acid. A spa that was using an excessive
amount of chemicals. It may take several months for the
resulting salts to wash out of your spa.
Foam & Scum
Oils, lotions and soaps
Run blowers and jets allowing foam to build up. Use a
piece of cardboard to scoop foam away. Repeat until foam
Eco One will eventually break down foam. The best cure
for this problem is to always take a soap-less shower
before getting into your spa.
During your first couple of months using
Eco One, you may experience cloudy water and mild "organic odors."
Use of your non-chlorine shock should clear the problem right up.
This is particularly common in older spas as contaminants and gunk
may continue to be loosened from your equipment and pipes. It may be
necessary to repeat the Eco One Plumbing Cleanser process.
A Note About Smaller Spas (under 200 gallons): Smaller spas
are more difficult to maintain than larger spas, particularly under
heavy use. There is a significantly higher "bather to
water" ratio in smaller spas. Consequently, the same amount of Eco
One Monthly should be used for small spas as large. Small
spas should be drained more often as well.
Tips and Tricks (top)
Never use a "clarifier" with Eco One. The clarifier can
remove the residual Eco One from your water and will clog up your
filter. Eco One is a natural clarifier. Cure cloudy water with a
Don't fight a chemical war with your spa, particularly with
regard to pH. Eco One will gently help to maintain ideal pH and
alkalinity in your spa. However, when you add a sanitizer or
non-chlorine shock treatment, the pH will shift somewhat. Add the
chemical, run your jets and then let the spa sit for awhile, then
check your pH. Nine times out of ten, the water will return to a
normal pH range.
On the rare occasion when you find that you have to adjust your
spa's pH, if you don't have any pH up or down available, some common
household items can be used. White vinegar or concentrated lemon
juice (no pulp) will lower your spa's pH while common baking soda
will raise it. Check your spa's instruction manual to make sure that
it does not specifically forbid these methods before implementing.
Clean your cover at least monthly with Eco One Cover Cleaner and
conditioner. This will help to reduce odors in your tub as well as
minimize sanitizer load. You will also extend the life of your
Foam: The best method to avoid ever developing a foam problem is
to always take a quick, soap-less shower before entering your spa.
Chemical Sanitizer Levels: Try to use the very minimum recommend
amount of sanitizer residual in your spa, particularly when using
ozone (.5 ppm). Always test your water BEFORE adding a sanitizer. Be
careful to monitor your chemical level closely as you may find that
the use of Eco One significantly increases chemical sanitizer
If you don't use your spa for a long period of
time, you may find that the water stays nice and clear for up to 3 months. Before using your spa again you need to add a new
bottle of Eco One Monthly to recondition the water and add 2
Tablets of Ecoone ONEshock.
Let Eco One and ONEshock keep your tub water
Never heat your tub to more than 104 degrees. Excessive heat
can be damaging to your heath as well as your spa equipment and can
Kill the Ecoone Enzyme.
Avoid making "Chemical Soup." In the end, it's
cheaper and healthier to drain and refill a spa that has "gone
over" than to chase it with chemicals, trying to "burn
out" the problem.
Respect the environment and respect your health. Use the least
number of toxic chemicals as is safely possible. Eco One can replace
the vast majority of your toxic chemical mix with gentle,
eco-friendly enzymes and natural compounds. Your choice of a
sanitizing agent is your choice. Remember that ozone is an extremely
powerful yet safe sanitizing agent, However, some sort of Bromine or
chlorine should be use as well.
Never use your spa under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Consult with a physician before using your spa If you have high
blood pressure or other heart problems or are pregnant.
Chlorine and Bromine are dangerous chemical compounds
when handled improperly. If you use chlorine or bromine as
a sanitizer always use the minimum recommended residual amount.
Never allow children in the spa immediately after adding chlorine or
bromine. NEVER expose yourself to chlorine or bromine dust. Do not
scatter chlorine or bromine in the tub as the finer particles can be
swept up in the wind and into your lungs. Be sure to follow
manufacture's instructions carefully.
